Former Gov. Rick Snyder (R-Michigan) said Thursday that he planned to vote for Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden in the November presidential election.
In an op-ed published by the USA Today, Snyder called President Donald Trump a bully who “lacks a moral compass” and said Biden would restore civility to the office of president.
“As a proud nerd, I had to deal with bullies over many years,” wrote Snyder. “It is tragedy watching our world suffer from one.”
Snyder is best known for being the governor who presided over the Flint water crisis, where thousands of people were exposed to lead after the city switched water supplies on the demand of state-appointed emergency managers.
As noted by The Detroit News, “other Michigan Republicans endorsing Biden include former Congressman Joe Schwarz, former Congressman Dave Trott, former Michigan Chamber of Commerce legal counsel Bob LaBrant, Sterling Heights Mayor Michael Taylor and former state Reps. Doug Hart, Mikey Knight and David Maturen.”
